From Cnoc Fyrish car park.Lionel Bidwell16/07/2018
Solo trip via Fyrish (which has the better views).Invicta1404/07/2018
An easy, enjoyable walk through a nice open forest from the big car park for Cnoc Fyrish, much loved by pet owners emptying their dogs. On the main path, then right at a major crossroads, and keep on this wide and obvious forest road below Cnoc Duchaire. Take an older track left (W) over a small stream where the main logging road heads off right around the hill (N), and keep following it onto the open hill meandering around Cnoc na Gaoithe (the more direct track along the fence is fictitious). Go to the high point of the track, then slightly down and you’ll see a bulldozed area to the left, which leads to a good path up the hill. Fine views.Gill04/05/2018
Parked at the enlarged Cnoc Fyrish car park and took the track 100 m to the NW. Followed the marked tracks to just below the summit and found a faint path which finished off the ascent. Bagging the trig.BigJ27/04/2018

Quite nice as forestry goes and good tracks and then a path, so very easy.jenx23/03/2016

Used cycle trail over Fyrish. High cloud, cold wind, great views.iangalbraith15/04/2010
Revisit. Heathery hill, hazy view including the bulk of Tarsuinn and Wyvis. From E this time, nice woodland, good tracks then spongy heather. Near the road a Timberjack was harvesting: the machine can fell a mature spruce, de-branch and cut it into lengths in under a minute. Driver's 4x4 had an IRL reg plate.RHW06/05/2008
